You’re looking for pleasantness and searching for peace. I know, because it’s December.
Changes, surprises, heartaches, social media wars, pressures, pains, worst possible election cycles . . . it’s been a year for the books, if you ask me.
But then, maybe you’re searching for pleasantness and peace in the New Year, because you’ve already tried other paths . . .
You opted for the way of foolishness, and you didn’t like where that led.
God doesn’t much care to see his people walking toward destruction, so such paths tend to be convoluted and obstructed.
He has blocked my ways with blocks of stones; he has made my paths crooked. Lam 3:9
Now imagine a path free of roadblocks, stretching as far as the eye can see.
To enter, you must acknowledge the Lord every step of the way.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Prov 3:6
. . . much like Wisdom.
Did you say you were searching for pleasantness and peace? Because Wisdom is the way to go.
Blessed is the one who finds Wisdom. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. Prov 3:17
Can we all please just start off on that path for 2017?
